Hundred Years War 11/9/05 1. Follow-Up to the Feudal Period a. Rise of the monarchy b. Increasing importance of castles as serious strongholds c. Brown’s book on castles gives a good overview now we have reached the period where “tourist” castles begin to take shape 2. Reasons why it is Interesting/Significant a. Keeping in mind the feudal background, we find the appearance of rather long range, ambitious strategies b. Rise of proto-national armies. c. Significant involvement of the civil population and devastating impact, especially in France, on the citizenry. Direct attacks on England included the attacks on the coast. d. Proto-nationalism. Reluctant to draw this one out, because it is a modern phenomenon. We do have ethic, cultural awareness. Sense of community fostered by the war. Must be careful not to be too influenced by Shakespeare and the Elizabethan sentiment. e. New developments in weaponry. On the English side, the appearance of the longbow. Development of effective siege cannons spells the end for the castles. f. More complex tactics. Realization that cooperation between foot and horse is necessary. Archers were important.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
